The OP specifically mentioned Thunderbird, not a remote mail server.
You often can't be sure what a mail client will do in this kind of
situation.  Especially when it's Thunderbird. :(

Agreed the tempfail would be fine most of the time, but some people do
seem to confuse email with Instant Messaging.  Just the other day, in
a discussion about email security, a guy grumbled about my greylisting
his mail for ten minutes!  I decided not to tell him that the default
greylist period here is a couple of hours, and just whitelisted him...
